Knox was convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher, who was found stabbed to death in the house she shared with Knox in the Italian university town of Perugia. The court ruled that Knox and her then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito slit Kercher's throat in a possible drug-fuelled sexual assault.

She is currently appealing the verdict. The new trial is now underway, and recent testimony is bringing new evidence to light about the events of the night of November 1, 2007.
